First, I’d like to congratulate myself. Why, you ask? Well, this is officially my 100th post!
First and foremost, I’d like to thank God. I’d also like to my mother for keeping me thoroughly fed and comfortable, my father for having a great sense of humour and for letting me be his side kick and go wherever he goes, and both of my parents together for still calling me baby, the same way they did when I was 4 years old.
Ok, all jokes aside, this post is about Lupus. It’s about Lupus and how much it smells.
Remember the other day? I was telling Lupus how weird it was. I had a sore ankle for such a long time, then it just went away. All by itself. Not that I was complaining….as I’m not a fan of pain. But still…..weird.
Now looky here. All of a sudden, I’ve been experiencing pain in my right hip area. Not cool, as I have avascular necrosis in my left hip and my right knee. I don’t need problems in my right hip area too. It’s also almost a pain in my lower stomach area too. At first I thought it might be my period or period pains. But so far, that doesn’t appear to be it.
As a woman, I know I’m supposed to get a period. Rose, my home hemo nurse, suggested I continue with home hemo for a while and my periods should return. Since I haven’t had one for a long time….I’m almost afraid to get it. I’m afraid that the wrath of my period will come and will have hemoglobin dropping results.
But I digress.
Lupus, you smell.
Like, smell really bad. Awful, in fact.
